Sunday morning in Indiana ... cool, gray and overcast.
No, I was not going to church in a buggy .... I was following this buggy
as we made our way to our respective places of worship.

Neat farmyards dotted the peaceful landscape that had been
brushed with a layer of snow.
 It was not terribly cold but even inside the car we needed the heater.

I love to hear the clip clop of the horses ...
 I love the watch these people from another culture than mine ...
.. people from every tribe and nation .. will stand before the
throne someday, the Bible says.

It was 8:30 am and already these buggies lined the yard ...
horses unhitched and taken to the barn.
I saw families walking but most found their way to the church gathering
on one of the farmyards, in the horse-drawn carriage.
We are looking for God ... we can find Him if we seek for Him
with all our heart.

For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand
that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2 :8 - 10 NKJV
